How do you know you have a plumbing emergency?
It’s easy to overlook the importance of your sewer line until you start experiencing clogged drains and an overflowing toilet. When your sewer line is damaged, waste removal becomes limited. Because of this, a damaged sewer line is often considered a plumbing emergency.
Look out for these problems:
- A puddle of sewage waste in your yard
- Smell of sewage coming from your drains
- Toilets fail to flush properly
- Sewage backs up through your drains or toilets
What are signs you need professional drain cleaning?
A minor drain clog is not a plumbing emergency, but it can develop into a more serious problem. So how do you know if it is time to call for professional drain cleaning? Look out for these signs:
- Slow drains
- Standing water in your shower, tub, or sink
- A clog farther in your sewer line affecting normal drain flow
